In 2016 I am aiming to move things from my UFO list to my completed list - in this instance a UFO is an UnFinished Object as at 1st January 2016. To count as a UFO the project has to actually have been started in some way, i.e. at least some cutting and/or sewing must have been done. This means a WIP* at the beginning of the year counts, but PIGS, PITs & PIWs don't, nor do USOs or WHIMs. My UFO count at the start of the year was about 15 and I would like to get at least one completed each month.
OMG for March!
I am using up pink fabrics for the elephants, many of which are from the scrap box and some yellow scraps for the ears. The stash and scrap raid yielded sufficient fabrics for fifteen pink elephants and by the end of the weekend the five small ones had been assembled and placed on my design "wall" aka my ironing board. All the pieces for five medium and five large ones are cut and ready to go.
A bonus this week has been some warm sunny weather meaning I was able to get out into the garden and carry on clearing last autumn's leaves from the flower beds and my plant pots where they have helped shelter my herbs from the coldest winter weather. The herbs were all pushed up against the wall of the house to aid their survival but now they have been moved out into the open to benefit from the rain we are promised next week. My spring bulbs are also looking good, some of the crocuses are blooming and the daffodils are pushing up leaves and flower buds. Now I have to be patient before planting my vegetable seeds for the year - last year I was a bit too impatient and the seedlings were getting too big before it was safe to put them outside, this year I shall hang on a bit longer before starting them inside.
This week I am linking up with:
Design Wall Monday and
